BEREA, Ohio (AP) - The Cleveland Browns, who last week traded out of the No. 2 spot and a chance to pick a potential franchise quarterback, made another deal before selecting Baylor wide receiver Corey Coleman with the No. 15 overall pick in the NFL draft.

On the clock for the first time Thursday night, Cleveland's new front office sent the No. 8 pick and a sixth-rounder this season to Tennessee in exchange for No. 15, a third-rounder (No. 76) and a second-round pick next year.

The Browns then took Coleman, a speedy route runner who scored 20 touchdowns last season and won the Fred Biletnikoff Award, given to the nation's top receiver. Coleman will be a downfield threat for new Browns quarterback Robert Griffin III, who also went to Baylor.

The Browns have needs all over the field and have seven of the top 100 picks to begin addressing them.
